High Country Pathway


The High Country Pathway remains the only IMBA Epic in the state, and a true 'backwoods' experience for bikepackers and hikers seeking the most remote trail experience. NMMBA has assisted a number of other trail organizations over the years to keep certain sections, like this one near Vanderbilt, in great shape! 

We had ten hearty souls show up to brave the heat at the undeveloped Pigeon River State Forest that encompasses the High Country Pathway.  85 degree temps, clouds of mosquitoes, tics and hail couldn't stop us from clearing 40 miles of trail on the 80 mile loop.  Volunteers came from as far as Grand Haven to help keep the only IMBA epic ride in Michigan open for all to enjoy.


A big thanks to all our volunteers, the DNR, and everyone involved to make sure the HCP stays awesome!
